So, today’s coming late, because my adapter decided to give it up yesterday. The wires started fraying at the port business end, finally snapping yesterday morning.
As soon as Ashley came, I was up with my laptop loaded in my backpack, made sure Joey was good, and was out the door to Best Buy.
At Best Buy, I went directly to the laptop department. When it was my turn, I told the guy what happened and what I needed.
Now, let’s talk about good intentions and reading people, leaving being a crip aside.
Come to find out the HP Spectre DOESN’T have a universal adapter yet…GUYS TAKE NOTE if you have one. Of course, I needed one, like, yesterday. The associate went to look for a stocked adapter, and, of course, they were out. I had to order one. BUT, he’d try to look for something to tide me over.
He DIDN’T have to go out of his way to try to find something to rig an adapter. He could’ve just ordered the part and sent me on my way.
Just making small talk, I told him what I do and that I was on a budget, and he went into a compartment under his computer, searching. Then, he pulled out a mate to my adapter unboxed. He told me since my laptop’s still on warranty, he’s just give me the adapter.
By this time, he’d already earned my employee of the month award, BUT he wasn’t done. After throwing the adapter in my back pack, we went over to Geek Squad, where he ordered ANOTHER adapter for me, keeping the first on the DL. Again, he didn’t have to do that for me.
That’s where good intentions and reading people come into play. He must’ve thought my intentions for what we do warranted the extra bit of work, because I’m a heavy believer in karma, and WOULD’VE been going home empty-handed if I wasn’t being honest.
That’s the way the world works whether we see it or not. Karma can give or take away…it’s up to us to decide which way it’ll go.
So, here I am…playing catch up with my thoughts.
Be good to each other.
